A Day to Remember – Com’Acumen 2020
~By Angela Thomas & Ana S. Thomas

Through the chilling wind, walking through puddles and the sticky mud, you could see excited, smiling faces setting up decorations for the event as they’had all been waiting for, Com’Acumen 2020. The Commerce Department of Jesus & Mary College had been working on their amazing annual event for sometime now and 17th January, 2020 was the day everybody’s hard work bore its fruit.

With an inaugural ceremony that included the release of The Mercurian Times’ first e-magazine, an inspiring address by some eminent personalities like Ms. Ankita Bhambhri & Mr. Ankur Dhama and some enthralling cultural performances, the auditorium could be seen bubbling with enthusiasm.

Events ranging from our annually held Amazing Race, which was conducted for its seventh season, to newer events like Comnovation, were all well-received and fetched us more than 100 registrations. For the lone wolves out there, Biztopia was their go-to event and the Corporate Triathlon was for all the commerce fanatics looking for enjoyment . With cash prizes up for grabs, competition was intense and so was the fun. We didn’t leave out anyone; so for all the food lovers out there, we set up some exciting stalls, preparing an array of hot & delectable food on-the-spot, to deliver us from not only our hunger pangs but also our desert cravings. An engaging flashmob was organized by a group of students from our department and everyone enjoyed dancing away on some all-time-favorite Bollywood songs.

Fun and games apart, the Commerce Department had also organized an afternoon to look forward to with artists like Mr. Poshak Dua who spooked us with his scientific mind readings, to Mr. Shivam Grover who entertained the crowd through his performance of various songs; we were grateful to all those who made this event possible. But just when we thought it couldn’t get any better, the Folking Desi Bhangra Group won over each of our hearts, with their energetic performance, their passion for Bhangra and their radiant smiles. Through their workshop, they gave us an opportunity to learn their art and taught us about how dance was so much more than just steps, it had to come from within.

Though this day was tiring, it made all the hard work seem worth the effort for every individual. Com’Acumen 2020 was the very first for some of our students and the last for some of our others; but through it all, working together with each other and looking at all the smiling faces, it made us realize that we had way more friends than we knew, which had made our college memories a lot more sweeter for us to cherish!IMG-20200121-WA0019

The urge to contribute to her college community while also getting herself familiarized with students with disability led Amiti Gupta, a sophomore student of English at the University of Delhi, to join project RISE. Over the course of three months, she not only formed bonds but also broke down misconceptions as she interacted with the students in the workshops she conducted as a trainer.

Reflecting on the teaching and learning experience, Amiti says, “I quickly realized that I needed to form a more humane connection with them and become friends while being professional at the same time. I got to know them on a personal level where they were comfortable enough to share with me their strengths and weaknesses. I hope Project RISE was able to better the students professional as well personal aspects increasing their confidence levels as it did mine.”

Amiti came with the thought that the students needed her help. Yet the experience has shown her how self-sufficient the students are themselves. With the hope of making a difference, Amiti is committed to the journey of enabling self- empowerment of the students.

Parwarish Cares Foundation is the non-profit wing of Parwarish Institute of parenting Private Limited. This organization works with the environment of a child (namely parents and teachers) to nurture happy, healthy, responsible and unstoppable children. With its ground firmly being- supporting children to discover their inherent unlimited potential, the organization works extensively across the country. One of the major issues that can become a barrier for children to discover this ‘no-limitness’ ; is the crime of Child Sexual Abuse.
By definition, sexual abuse is the act of violating a person’s body with a sexual intent. It includes someone touching a child on their body parts; especially private parts without consent, a child being exposed to someone’s private parts online or offline without informed consent, forcing a child to have sexual intercourse, making the child watch something sexual online or offline, in person or virtually.
In India, there is a rampant upsurge in cases of child sexual abuse. Efforts to eradicate it, are thus the need of the hour.
Creating a dialogue on the intensity and severity of child sexual abuse as a crime will begin with the sensitization of the country’s population towards: the idea of sex as a normal biological need and not a taboo, the disjunction between right or wrong -morality and sex, and the need for parents and teachers to start talking to children about sex and sexuality, preceding the crime of sexual abuse.
Eradication of Child Sexual Abuse can begin only when children and caregivers are aligned to the aforementioned ideas. Parwarish Cares Foundation has created a mission to accomplish these.
The organization stands firmly on the idea that before eradicating Sexual Abuse- a structural problem, it is necessary to have a conversation on what Sexual Abuse actually implies and more importantly, where it stems from. In the quest to do this, the organization has launched its powerful campaign called ‘AAO BAAT KAREIN”, with the objective of eradicating all kinds of sexual abuse from the country by the year 2030.
We are celebrating the coverage of the Aao Baat Karein Campaign at Parwarish Cares Foundation. Through its workshops, by November 30th, the campaign has covered One lakh Six thousand, two hundred and thirty two children (1,06,232), 4500 teachers, 4500 parents, more than 500 caregivers, and counselors across various states of India. This includes government schools, private schools, non-government organizations, cities, sub urban areas, villages and public spaces across the country. The Aao Baat Karein campaign also launched its street theatre project, that translated the session into a ‘nukkad naatak’ which was performed and accepted generously in several public spaces in Delhi including Connaught Place, Palika Bazar and so on. It is currently ready for its second season with several performances in schools across the city in association with Tagore International School.

This campaign covers a lot of aspects which serve to make it a unique experience.
1. Trainers and educators get trained in the module and are equipped to tweak/modify it as per the children they cater to. Our module and presentation with a poster on the same are given to the teachers after the session so that it can be consistently carried out with children.
2. Participants dialogue about ‘why’ there is a need to talk about sexual abuse and its eradication and ‘how’ to go about it.
3. Participants/Children get aware of the various kinds of myths about sexual abuse that surround us. They get a glimpse of the reality of the prevalence of child sexual abuse through actual facts from reliable sources.
4. Children/participants are introduced to and understand the meaning of an ‘Unsafe’ touch and its difference from the otherwise taught ‘Bad touch’. This is a completely new addition to modules on sexual abuse.
5. Participants/Children are trained/ empowered to say NO- through a process of experiential learning, where they learn of the power of this word. Unless and until each person experiences the power of this through a process specifically designed for the session, the session does not progress forward.
6. Children get acquainted with the numerous ways and situations that can be of sexual abuse in their own lives and the several helpline numbers they can contact on.
7. Children/ participants demarcate between sexual abuse that happens via physical contact and that which happens without physical contact (Non- contact sexual abuse).
8. Children/ participants see in reality how a person facing sexual abuse would feel and the environment to be created around this person to empower them to deal with the trauma and effects of sexual abuse.
